Ukraine (20 May 2024)

Marie Rimmer: For more than two years Ukrainians have been fighting this war on behalf of us all. The brave Ukrainians are fighting for our shared values. They are fighting for our democracy, for our freedom, and indeed for Europe’s freedom. Many of those brave Ukrainians have made the ultimate sacrifice. Women and children have paid with unspeakable suffering and death. We are not dying each day to...

Marie Rimmer: What recent assessment he has made of the potential implications for his policies of the number of children being remanded to custody.

Justice: Children Remanded in Custody (14 May 2024)

Marie Rimmer: Some 44% of places in youth custody are taken up by children and young people on remand who do not go on to receive a custodial sentence. Yet children held in young offenders institutions spend most of their time locked up in their cells, amid high levels of violence. Does the Minister think that that is the best place to spend time during adolescence?

Education: Apprenticeship Achievements (29 Apr 2024)

Marie Rimmer: What assessment she has made of trends in the number of apprenticeship achievements.

Education: Apprenticeship Achievements (29 Apr 2024)

Marie Rimmer: Giving all young people a good education is key to levelling up our country, yet the number of apprenticeship starts has fallen by a third over the last decade and there are 3% fewer completions than three years ago. We have improved on last year, but we are not there yet. Why have the Government let the number of offered and available apprenticeships slide, and why does the Minister think...

Hospice Funding (22 Apr 2024)

Marie Rimmer: I thank my hon. Friend for giving way and I thank the hon. Member for Hastings and Rye (Sally-Ann Hart) for securing the debate. It has been a wonderful and sincere debate, but does my hon. Friend agree that there should be more equality between care at home—hospice at home—and care at the hospice? There is no doubt that there is nothing better than care in a hospice—absolutely no...

Hospice Funding (22 Apr 2024)

Marie Rimmer: I thank my hon. Friend for her wonderful contribution to the debate. Many people want to stay at home—I have stayed with four people right through to their deaths at home—but hospices give a different care from hospitals. If you go into hospital, you might not get into the hospice. We have 10 beds in the most beautiful hospice, which is funded 71% from fundraising. If they are not in a...

Justice: Time Spent in Cells: Reoffending Rates (20 Feb 2024)

Marie Rimmer: What assessment he has made of the potential impact of the length of time that prisoners spend in their cells on reoffending rates.

Justice: Time Spent in Cells: Reoffending Rates (20 Feb 2024)

Marie Rimmer: Reoffending costs £18 billion a year, but there is not just the financial cost but the impact on society in general, as well as on the individual. Some young prisoners are still getting only one hour out of their cells, so there is no time for rehabilitation—they can perhaps do a little exercise, but that is not the same. How confident is the Minister that all young prisoners will get the...

Tributes to Sir Tony Lloyd (23 Jan 2024)

Marie Rimmer: It has been a real comfort to me to listen to so many tributes for such a wonderful man that I have the highest respect for. I had the pleasure of knowing Tony for many years and it was a joy to work together in Parliament after decades of friendship. He was such a kind, caring, compassionate man. Tony could not help himself from helping others. Every day was a day of action to help others...

Public Bill Committee: Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 Jan 2024)

Marie Rimmer: Q Could you speak up a little, please?

Public Bill Committee: Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 Jan 2024)

Marie Rimmer: We need to be careful on this. Councils are constantly picking up bills from other people, and these costs are the costs of poor developers. There are different ways of dealing with different aspects of this. One is safety development. To take a leaf out of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, you design, you develop, you construct—for use, maintenance and everything. Why not do the...

Public Bill Committee: Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 Jan 2024)

Marie Rimmer: No, I was picking up on that point. The lady present understood it. She was saying that it is not that the councils are paying twice for something; everybody looks—

Public Bill Committee: Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill: Examination of Witness (16 Jan 2024)

Marie Rimmer: Good afternoon, professor. You have provided several recommendations to the Government on leasehold enfranchisement. Do you believe that the provisions in the Bill will make it easier and cheaper to buy a freehold or extend a leaseQ ?
